Inspection of Fluorescent Coating Systems
This technology update discusses the uses of fluorescent coatings to assist inspection with the use of ultraviolet light. This technique assists in quickly identifying holidays and areas with low film thickness, and can be used in both primer and finish coats. It may also enable the inspector to detect incomplete removal of coatings. General information on ultraviolet lamps and safety precautions for their use is also provided.
